Hidden by Meghan O’Flynn – Review by Michelle Austin

Hidden (Ash Park, #4)Hidden by Meghan O’Flynn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hidden was a great 5 star read and book 4 in the Ash Park series.
Meghan continues to pull me right in with her writing and I didn’t want to stop until I was done.
There is all sorts of dark going on in this great series and Hidden continues to add even more.

Petrosky is working on a brutal murder case of a grandmother. When he discovers that a killer from the past is back he is determined to stop him. I was trying to figure things out right from the beginning and flying threw the pages to see what was coming next.

Will he be able solve the murder before anyone else becomes a victim?

There is so much more to this great read. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. If your looking for a great read with unexpected twists and turns with murder, mystery, suspense and so much more than 1-click and get started today. I’m super excited to get my hands on the next book in the series.

The Jack (The Immortal Series) by M.K. Harkins – Review by Michelle Austin

The Jack (The Immortal Series Book Two)The Jack by M.K. Harkins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Jack was a great 5 star read and book 2 in The Immortal Series.
I was excited to get started on this read to see where the series was going next with Archer.

We get pulled in right from the beginning when Archer is sitting on the beach watching the one woman he loved but would never have because of choices that were made years before. When Sadie sits down next to him, something happens that causes him to make a choice.

By warning Archer, Sadie has revealed her true self, she panics and takes off. When Archer reveals how he knew of the impending danger, he is convinced to help search for Sadie.

What will happen when they find her? Will they work together or against each other?

I really liked Sadie, she tugged at my heart strings, especially with the years spent alone. Archer was great as well and when he connects with Sadie you can feel the connection. There is so much to this great story, suspense, twists, secrets, tears, and a little bit of romance for good measure. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. The Jack can be read as a stand alone, but I feel you will understand things so much better if you start with book 1. I can’t wait to get started on the next book in the series.

The Boss by Abigail Owen – Review by Michelle Austin

The Boss (Fire's Edge, #1)The Boss by Abigail Owen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Boss was a great 5 star read and book 1 in the Fire’s Edge series.

Finn is the leader of a group of dragon shifters. We get a glimpse into a very heartbreaking scene with Finn that shows us why he’s against finding a new mate. But when he meets Delaney there is something that draws him in, the need to protect her.

Delaney has tried to flee her stalker and unexplained fires by moving across country. When another fire starts at the winery she is working on, she is terrified. There is something about Finn that she feels like she can finally open up to someone without feeling like she’s crazy.
Will Finn and the team understand? Can they help her?

When they find out who/what is really after Finn things take a twist.
There is so much more to this great read. Finn and Delaney end up giving into their attraction and it’s very steamy or should I say fire starting. There is danger, suspense, mystery, and so much more. I loved Delaney’s sassiness and strength. All of the secondary characters were great and the dragons sounded really hot and were just like a huge family. I can’t wait to read more from this series and I wouldn’t mind some more from Finn and Delaney as well.

This is my first read from Abigail Owen and I was pleasantly surprised. I was pulled right in and didn’t want to stop until I was done.

Must Remember by Colleen S. Myers – Review by Michelle Austin

Must Remember (Solum, #1)Must Remember by Colleen S. Myers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Must remember was a very interesting 4 star read and book one in the Solum series.

The way this book starts is really twisted and insane. I had no idea what was going on right along with Elizabeth. Elizabeth ends up waking up in a whole new world with two suns. She is beyond confused, she ends up meeting some men that take her back to their village.

Elizabeth would have memories here and there, she was also learning about her magic. We also get a love triangle when Finn and Marin are vying for her attention and they are not shy about it. I wasn’t quite sure how I felt about Marin at first, he seemed a little shady for me. Finn pulled me in until some secrets were revealed. I’m still on the fence on whose team I’m on.

There is so much more that goes on, danger, secrets, suspense and action. I really liked Elizabeth’s strength and sassiness, I had so many LOL moments with her. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. We do end with a cliff hanger and I can’t wait to see what happens next. Colleen has done another great job of pulling you right in with her writing.

Marks of the Mazza (Book One of The Mazza Series) by Blake Blessing – Review by Michelle Austin

Marks of the MazzaMarks of the Mazza by Blake Blessing
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Marks of the Mazza was an interesting 4 star read and book one of the Mazza series.
This is my first read by Blake Blessing and her debut as well. This is an interesting new twist to paranormal romance/Reverse Harem and my first time reading this genre.

After closing up for the night at her job, Isolde ends up getting into a car that she thought was her Uber, there are very handsome men in the car. She ends up seeing the men again and there is an attraction that she is feeling. After a toe curling kiss she finds herself waking up in a whole new world where she is staying with Donato, Sage, Egan and Jari.

These men have been friends since childhood and have made an agreement amongst them, to mate with a Mazza, when they find her to get their full powers to help in the war. We discover that Sage may have a little glitch in his commitment, will he follow through with mating? There are definitely plenty of other’s very interested in taking his place, good and bad.

There are additional characters introduced and they all added a great element to the story. I was pulled right in and really enjoyed this story.There is so much going on and we do get some hot mating scenes as well. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was coming next. We did end with a cliff hanger and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

Joker’s Fool by Manda Mellett – Review by Michelle Austin

Joker's Fool (Satan's Devils MC #8)Joker’s Fool by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Joker’s Fool was a great 5 star M/M read and is book 8 in the Satan’s Devils MC.
We jump from past to present as Joker remembers his childhood memories.

Joker has a secret that he’s keeping from his MC brothers. We get a deeper look into Joker’s childhood and his struggles he went through at home. Kind of breaks your heart, I had a few teary eyed moments.

Lady helps Joker realize that there is nothing wrong with him and that they can be happy with who they are and who they love. Lady had a very different upbringing that was supportive and very opposite of Joker.

Can these two have a HEA? How will their brothers react to the truth?

Manda really pulled me in with her writing. My emotions were all over the place, hate, fear of discovery, pain from past, and so much more. Joker had me right from the first time I met him in the series, and getting to know his story was something I couldn’t wait to read. I’m glad that Lady was there to love and help Joker. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. This can be read as a stand alone, I definitely need to go back and catch up.

Fisher of Men (Eastern Shore Swingers Book 1) by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Michelle Austin

Fisher of MenFisher of Men by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fisher of Men was a great 5 star read and book one in the Eastern Shore Swingers series.

We have Leah who is an innocent in many ways, she is working as a Customer service person at a hotel. When she meets Cap at a party that she is working she is shocked to hear exactly what kind of party it is. Although, the lifestyle is a litte intriguing to her.

Leah ends up in a relationship with Cap. You go girl! We get some steamy scenes from them. I really enjoyed reading their story and there were some interesting twists that caused some issues for them. Will Leah be able to accept the lifestyle?

Leah was a little different, coming from a small town she was experiencing a lot of new things, and she was very hard working. Cap is of course in the lifestyle but when he saw Leah something about her drew him in. If he finds “the one” he would be willing to give up the lifestyle, will that be Leah? Can they have a HEA?

The secondary characters added a great element to the story. Phoebe has once again pulled me right in with her writing. I really like the quotes at the beginning of each chapter, they are great. The ending was great, I was a little nervous at first, I wasn’t sure exactly what was going to happen. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in the series, I need to see where things are going with these two.

The Sound of Love by Maria Watts – Review by Michelle Austin

The Sound of Love (The Sound series #1)The Sound of Love by Maria Watts
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Sound of Love was a great 5 star read.

Chris is the lead singer of the band The Funky Boys, Nina ends up finding Chris’s phone # and they start to talk all the time on the phone and grow closer. As they get to know each other she finds herself being pulled into his world. When Chris’s band comes to her area their connection is overwhelming.

She ends up going on tour with Chris and his band and see what his life entails. It’s definitely not what she had pictured. Can she deal with the groupies and the hectic life of a Rockstar? Can these two make things work or will Nina go back to her own world?

There is so much to The Sound of Love that really pulled me in. To read about their journey and the realizations that Nina has about life. Chris is torn, he wants Nina but he doesn’t want to change.

Nina she was the innocent that gets pulled into a shocking and wild lifestyle. She would allow Chris to hurt her over and over again and still go back. Chris at times was not nice and I wanted to smack him quite a few times. He was spoiled due to the quick rise in fame and I think he felt entitled.

The thing about this story that pulled me in is that this is two are teenagers discovering their first love, they both come from totally different worlds. I was pulled right in with their story. And who hasn’t fantasized about going on tour with her rocker crush? oh my what I wouldn’t do for that. What a dream. 1-click and find out for yourself. Thank you Maria Watts for a good read that brought back memories and fantasies for me.

The Reader by M.K. Harkins – Review by Michelle Austin

The ReaderThe Reader by M.K. Harkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Reader was an interesting 4 star read.

Ann wakes up on a beach with no memory of who she is and a gunshot wound to her arm. She ends up meeting Devon and Archer who were sent to find her and bring her safely back to the compound where doc can help her.

Both Devon and Archer definitely have different personalities. Devon was standoffish and short with Ann and Archer was charming and helpful. As I got to know them better and we learned more about Ann and the Readers, I understood some things even more.

Ann starts to have memory flashes here and there. I had a lol moment during the “rat” scene. Ann eventually gets confronted and threatened by someone who has some jealousy issues with her.

There are some twists, turns and a love triangle. This was a quick read with a good storyline. The secondary characters were great, my most favorite character was Lucy, her personality was bouncy and fun. I really enjoyed this book, although while reading I felt some similarities to some other books I’ve read. If your looking for some action and heart stopping moments this would be a good read for you. I actually would love to see more from all of these characters, maybe some history on them. Can’t wait to see what’s coming next from M.K. Harkins.

Special Agent Charli by Mimi Barbour – Review by Michelle Austin

Special Agent Charli (Undercover FBI Book 6)Special Agent Charli by Mimi Barbour
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Special Agent Charli was a great 5 star read and book 6 in the Undercover FBI series.
This is a great romantic thriller and my first read from Mimi Barbour, she pulled me right in.

Charli was great, she had some sassiness to her. She was looking forward to a long vacation when Alicia shows up at her door begging for help. Alicia has witnessed a murder and now he’s coming for her. Charli is asked to go into witness protection to take care of Alicia and keep her safe.

Blake is quite the ladies man and when put in charge of Charli and Alicia he finds himself attracted to Charli. He knew just how to push Charli’s buttons. Charli found Blake very handsome and she felt some attraction, but there was also something about him that annoyed her.

These two played off each other, the bantering was great. Charli has some very big walls built up, can Blake break them down? Can they find the killer before its too late?

The secondary characters added a great element to the story. I loved Gramps, he was great and I had several lol moments with him. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was coming next. This was an action packed thriller and I can’t wait to read more from this author. It can be read as a stand alone.
